    Just a note, i noticed these extracts while looking through there catalog thought i would share, it seems like extracts are starting to catch up, now we just need a 100% oat malt extract lol.
    The mind is like a beer, it does the most good when it is opened.

    I don't supposed you could tell me what the flavor difference between Marris Otter and, say, regular 2 row base malt is like? I've probably had beer with Marris Otter in it, but I wouldn't know from personal brewing experience.
    Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world. (I think I may have found her!)

    On deck: Citra smash
    Fermenting: None
    bottled: Porter, lots of cider, IPA, honey ale, and esb.
    Secondary: Zip point squat
    Kegged: Amber Ale

    Well for lack of a better way to put it, it has more of an English taste,Biscuit like maybe, honestly it is hard for me to describe because my taste buds are not real sensitive due to being a smoker for 27 years. I hope maybe some of the other guys here like Brewdog,millrat,corky,etc can chime in and give you a better answer. My taste buds are not real good for subtle differences, for example i could prolly not tell you based on taste the difference between 10 IBU and 25 IBU.

    I guess the best way for you to do it would be to get a jug of the marris otter and a jug of say standard light malt extract and make to very simple side by side batches using a very basic recipe like this one

    6lbs Marris Otter Extract
    1oz Your favorite hops @60 min boil
    Nottingham dry yeast

    Then do one that is

    Briess Pale Malt Extract
    1oz of the same hop as above @60 mins
    Nottingham dry yeast

    Ferment them at the same temp for 30 days, carb them both for the same length of time, and taste them at the same time. That is the best way i personally can explain to learn the difference.
